David Gregory Giving NBC Sex Appeal

One of my favorite news guys is David Gregory, who hosts Meet The Press.  I LOVE the prematurely gray look set off against the dark eyebrows.  Here is a silly little clip that I thought up while I was watching him interview McCain this past weekend.

Sujata And Siddhartha

Rachel Zoe gave Siddhartha the once over and sniffed, "Pffft!  I've seen skinnier."

I know less than zero about Buddhism, but I was watching a special on it and got inspired by a skeletal statue of the pre-Buddha Buddha and decided to give it a shot.  It doesn't move me like dead Jesus does, but it was an interesting exercise.

Janelle Monae - Esque

This video by Janelle Monae had me wanting to give her a standing ovation.  I love the James Brown flavor of the song and visually Janelle is an artist's dream.  She's got a look that is very specific to her so you can play around with interpretations and have it still be recognizable as Janelle Monae.   This drawing, however, is just a straightforward sort of portrait.  I can see myself returning to the Janelle-well in the future for something more abstract.

Veronica Wipes Jesus Christ's Face

So, Jesus was lugging his cross to Golgotha when he nearly collapsed and Veronica, thinking she was doing a good deed, wiped his face.  But the thing is, all of his makeup came off on her towel, and Jesus had to get crucified without his face on.  For shame, Veronica, what would Tammy Faye say?

Kalup Linzy - Esque

I spotted artist/performer/video auteur Kalup Linzy in the April Details magazine (I'm finally catching up with my back issues) and totally thought, "Must look up this persona and sketch him."  Here we have one of Kalup's alter egos.  **I won't put my normal disclaimer about the picture not really looking like the subject, but by putting this non-disclaimer, I'm actually putting my normal disclaimer.**

At The Brothel

Gustavo, now chained to a wall in his cell, had to be taught that attempts to escape would be met with the harshest of punishments.

It had been some time since I'd drawn anything, so this one has much more detail.  I was bursting.
